National Holiday Not a Public Holiday


  • Public holidays that occur on a weekend remain on that date (ie. they are not moved to another date, such as the following Monday, for example)
  • Ascension is officially only one day ( Thursday), but often the Friday is taken or given as an additional Day.
  • Public holidays may be referred to as 'Red Days' (röd dag) as when they are shown in calendars, they are often printed in red ink.
